Govt. may go slow on police commissionerates
The government seems to have gone slow on the rollout of a police commissionerate system for Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi cities by empowering IPS officers with magisterial powers.
“The government does not have any haste in rolling out the commisionerate system. The issues are beyond giving magisterial powers and a decision will be taken after holding consultations with all concerned and after reaching a consensus,” Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan told the Assembly on Tuesday.
The Chief Minister, who also holds the Home portfolio, said the government had no plans to give the crucial powers sought by IPS officers.
